Alright, so I'm going to start by saying that I don't know a whole lot about the process as I've never done a mod before, and that's why I'm here to ask. I have a 2015 dart 2.4L manual, and I want to turbo it. The only kit I can find made for it is this. https://roadracemotorsports.com/sto...ucts_id=2049&zenid=cc0taokg3j6a5eguvdr329iue2
But I'm not sure how reliable this site is and I'm not about to spend any money without knowing I can trust them. If there's other options that could work too I'd love to see them. Really any advice tips or knowledgeable opinions on the matter are welcome. Thank you!

The Dart platform is not a good candidate for an aftermarket turbo. The ecu is heavily encrypted and does not like changes. There is one company, Syked ECU tuning, who says they have an ecu tune but nobody has even bought one yet to try it. The Road Race kit you linked has a reputation of poor quality.

Save your money and buy something else worth putting a turbo on or a car that already has one. I myself enjoy Eagle Talons/Mitsubishi Eclipse cars. My 1993 Talon with 350hp(full list of mods) was only $3,300 to buy, far less than that turbo kit from Road Race and much more fun.

I will be doing the full TURBO build hopefully to complete by as early as next year.
The main issues with the ECU have been solved either early this year or last year. So I safe reliable tune of the turbo system should be fully possible. Still the area for concern for most will be sending the ECU out to the tuner (or receiving a new ECU) as this part can't be skipped because the ECU needs to be physically unlocked. But after that safe FLASHED TUNES can be applied. If you want to wait on my build :) thats an option but just to let you know doing it properly WILL NOT COME CHEAP. I'm already 8 Grand maybe a lil less in just getting it set for the TURBO APPLICATION. Hopefully the shop will produce kits if you (forum) are interested other than that the price im looking at total would be a BASE MODEL DART. But considering whats been changed look at it as a NEW CAR, A TOP TIER CAR FOR A BASE MODEL PRICE. Just don't have any structural issues and some cash and you'd be good to go. EST. $13K-18K my plan was I stayed away from performance mods to have mostly everything custom fabricated for the actual platform of a real TURBO MODEL.
